What will I get for the ticket?

  • Access to a big empty playground.
  • Water, toilets, power, security.
  • The opportunity to apply for art grants.

That is all. Everything else, including, but not limited to, food, extension cords, sound system, shelter, candy, art, hugs, clothing, music, dreams, medical supplies, fire safety, common sense, cleaning, loving and dancing will be up to the participants of the Burn to provide.

Do I need to be a Burner, Borderling or have previous experience with The Borderland or Burning Man to attend Urban Burn 2018?

Chances are that you heard about this event from friends or friends of friends that might be part of the Borderland or Burning Man communities, if so then you probably know that we are all about inviting everyone from any corner of society in every corner of the word  into our collaborative gatherings. So, the answer is No, you do not need to have any previous experience in any other Burning Man inspired event! 🙂 and the good news is that this can be your very first one!  If you feel intrigued, curious and fascinated by expressing and co-creating in a space where you will give that very unique part of your vision of life to many other co-creators, then why wait?

How much do I have to work?

So, what does it mean to “participate”, to contribute? Well, only you can be the judge of your own self-expression. Whether you build giant contraptions, play music, make smoothies or give excellent massages, you do it on your own conditions. It is up to you to find a way of contributing that you are comfortable with. Along your way, you will find many who are willing to help you, and many who will be needing help. Participation is not about performance, it’s a way of looking at the world around you as an opportunity to give.

Will there be X at Urban Burn?

Yes. If you, or someone else, make it happen.

Where can I put my Y?

Can I play music/DJ at Urban Burn?

Yes, if you bring a sound system or find someone who will bring a sound system. As the venue will be fairly crowded, with a lot of different music, performances and moods, there will be some restrictions on how loud you can play.

How about alcohol?

Due to Swedish laws, the only alcohol allowed will be sold by the venue. The bar will be open XX.00-03.00 on Friday and Saturday night. Do not bring your own alcohol to the event. Please note that money in other forms are very uninteresting – alcohol is the only thing that will be traded for money at this event and everything else is unconditional gifting.

Can I bring my kids to the Urban Burn?

Children and teenagers under the age of 18 can come to Urban Burn when there is no alcohol being sold. This means you can bring them on the 12th, 13th, and during daytime on the 14th and 15th. Children enter free of charge if accompanied by a parent or caretaker.

Who cleans up? What is this “Leave no Trace”-thing?

Leaving No Trace means being mindful of the trash – or “Matter Out Of Place” (MOOP) – we create around us. Think of this as being your best friend’s house party. If you realize you have trash in your hand, put it in a trash can instead of leaving it on a table. If you have a bottle, recycle it immediately when it gets empty, instead of postponing it until another time.

The Sunday, March 13, is dedicated to dismounting and removing any projects built during the week and weekend. You are responsible for removing anything that you brought to the location and leave as it was. Some recycling will be provided, but if you bring bigger stuff, you need to have a way to get it back out.

How do I bring stuff to Urban Burn?

You can drive straight into the venue at all times except 20.00-03.00 on Friday and Saturday night (then you have to unload on the parking lot next to the venue). If you need help with transport, please ask around in #logistics on Slack.

Will there be a place to check in clothing or valuables?

There will only be an unmanned coat check / storage. Neither Nobelberget or Urban Burn will take responsibility for any items lost during the event.

It’s only April! How cold is it going to be?

It’s indoors, and we have some heating, but it’s not very warm. If you’re not dancing you might want to keep a good sweater or a jacket on even indoors.

Will there be tickets sold at the door?

No. Ticket sales end on April 11th at midnight. It will not be possible to buy a ticket at the door.

I’m a member of the media, how do I get accreditation?

We treat everyone the same, and do not give out media passes. You are more than welcome to join us as a co-creator, by buying a membership (ticket) and participate fully in co-creating the event! For other media inquiries, please contact Gustaf Josefsson, 0709-854979.

Can we use candles and such?

Last year we had a super strict policy of no candles, no incense, no sage or burning of anything inside. I recommend you keep the same policy. Nightclub fire regulations are not really taking into account that there may be tents and fabric inside (source: Hugi Asgeirsson)
